Jargon used on the Bubba Todd Show
Boochi – Cafecito (Shot of Cuban Coffee). Often enjoyed amongst friends at their favorite corner shop, while “swappin’ some stories” (from the coconut telegraph).
Boochi Machine – Cuban Coffee Press for the making of high octane Cafecito’s, Café con Leche or a Cortadito. Please drink responsibly.
Ham and Eggers – The hard-working men and women who rise each day and put their coverings on one leg at a time, then head in to punch the clock at various occupations in pursuit of “the ever loving’ weekend”.
Bubba and Cuz (also Cuzzie) – The Conch Republic’s roots can be traced back to a seafaring people, many of which migrated here from the Bahamas. Also, with its close proximity to Cuba and the many Cubanos who migrated as well, Key West culture was largely influenced by both the customs of these Caribbean people. Being a small island with a tight knit community, in the early days many of your friends and acquittances were likely your far removed or even close related cousins. Therefore, Conchs took to calling each other Cuz and Bubba, to acknowledge all their friends.
